Have you ever tried running in the sand? It’s pretty hard. Every time you try lifting your foot, the other sinks lower in the sand, sometimes knocking you off your balance. But since it’s hot out there, and with your determination to get to those cool ocean waves, you stick it out and power through. Once you’re finally in the water, you can look back at your footprints, showing every step you took and how far you’ve traveled.
Try looking at life with that same perspective. It’s a journey where you’ll sometimes find yourself knocked off balance. However, you keep pushing through. In the end, you’ll be able to look back and reflect on how far you’ve come and all that you’ve accomplished. Not only that, but you’ve also left footprints in the sand to help guide someone else along the way.
